htconexHTC’s new range of One smartphones has certainly impressed the crowd over at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, and we do look forward to see these handsets arrive on the mass market shortly. We do know that the HTC One XL will hit AT&T on an exclusive basis in the US, and there are now rumors making their way around that Sprint as well as T-Mobile customers too, will be able to jump aboard the HTC One X bandwagon through a variant being released sometime this spring or by early summer at the latest. Sprint is said to work on their own version of the HTC One X, placing it under the EVO brand, while Sprint’s version will run on Qualcomm’s S4 chip, allowing it to play nice with Sprint’s spanking new 4G LTE network at the same time. Some of the possible names could be the EVO LTE, EVO HD, and EVO 3 – you take your pick.

As for T-Mobile subscribers, their HTC One X version will not stray from the original, boasting a similar quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor with HSPA+ connectivity. As T-Mobile already intends to roll out the HTC One S with Sense 4.0, it goes without saying that the One X’s release as the G4X handset ought to logically arrive with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on board. We look forward to CTIA Wireless in May, as it is expected that both T-Mobile and Sprint will announce these two smartphones then.
